It’s been a while since I’ve posted, so sorry guys. To quickly bring you all up to speed, I’m 4 weeks out from my bikini competition. Yikes!
I’ve taken a completely different approach to my prep this time around. I’m happy with the foods I’m eating, feel energized, full, and excited to step on stage. My confidence is through the roof–I feel incredible (insert hair-flip emoji…is that what she’s doing? I don’t even know…I just pretend she’s hair flippin’ it up)
Anyway, right now, I’m sitting at Starbucks catching up on some work and I thought I would just share a quick post laying out what my meals look like for the day.
Yeah, you saw that correctly. Starbucks. During prep.
Venti unsweetened 1/2 passion tea and 1/2 green tea (b/c metabolism, duh)
I applaud those of you who are ok with eating bland tilapia or chicken, brown rice and veggies 3x a day everyday. I’m happy that works for you. But for me, I love food. And in the past when I limited myself to this kind of diet, I failed miserably. I would binge eat at night and literally cry if I ate something “unhealthy”.
Now looking back, I giggle at myself. I can’t believe that I ever thought that I couldn’t achieve my fitness goals while enjoying the foods I love. I have a soft spot for Oreos, donuts, ice cream, and burgers…and I’ll eat these….but in moderation
So…here’s what my meals for today looks like! Everything here is based on my daily macros that are calculated based on my height, fitness goals, weight, activity level. MyFitnessPal is a great resource to help you keep track of your macros!
4 egg whites scrambled with 1/2 cup spinach
1/2 cup oatmeal (measured dry)
1 tablespoon snickerdoodle Buff Bake almond butter (mixed in my oatmeal since I loooove nut butters)
I’m usually pretty full from my breakfast so I typically just have a protein shake. Quick and easy!
4 oz chicken seasoned with Flavor God Lemon & Garlic
5 oz asparagus
2 Wasa Sourdough Cripsbread (sometimes I have 4 oz of red potatoes or an Oroweat country potato bun)
4 oz tuna
2 oz chopped celery
Srirachaaaa (bring on the heat!)
I am obsessed with stir fry and throwing together whatever I have in my kitchen so this is what was on the menu tonight!
4 oz bison seasoned with Flavor God Everything Spicy
2 egg whites
Mixed veggies (like bell peppers, zucchini)
splash of Bragg’s liquid aminos
I eat this within an hour of finishing my workout. And the moment you’ve been waiting for…
1/2 scoop of protein in water
And a sundae consisting of…
1 cup Arctic Zero Cookie Shake flavor
1 tablespoon all natural peanut butter
There you have it. Happy mind, happy tummy, and still got abs.
